“I think I’m more excited for the unification:” Local star, Jay Copeland, gets a big welcome home at SBY event

SALISBURY, Md.- American Idol star, Jay Copeland, took the stage Friday night, as Salisbury officials are hosted a homecoming event Downtown to celebrate Jay’s journey on American Idol.

The air was filled with excitement and support. There were food trucks, music, and a live performance by Jay. We caught up with Jay before he went on stage and he told us he was looking forward to this moment. He never never imagined he would be in this position, but now that he is, he wanted the audience to enjoy the moment and know he is thankful for them.

“To make people have fun, smile, I think I’m more excited for the unification, you know seeing everyone have a good time,” Copeland said. “Ten years ago that little boy that was bullied and that was struggling with his self identity that little boy never saw this day coming.”

Jay said going from here he has plans of touring, making his own music, and doing some Broadway.
